No comment.

Well, maybe one... but not about the three-day dick slapping that just occurred. No, it's about the inane "home field" rule that a ball that would have traveled 450 feet can be called a single (or an out if the rebound had been caught) simply because it hit a f-ing roof lamp. How stupid is that? I realize that these situations are probably extremely rare but is there any doubt that Ortiz's ball wouldn't have been about 20 rows up? I can't imagine that anyone who was there (umpires included) couldn't have pictured that bullet putting a fist-sized dent in the back wall of the stadium. Yet it remained a single and, thanks to ice-cold Manny, an eventual double-play, erasing that which would have created a tie-game in later innings. A bad rule in an awful stadium, and it took them out of the running early.
Not that they even remotely deserved to win, of course.

That seems like a situation that has to be resolved. Even Tampa Bay has their grounds rules somewhat reasonable, but to say the speakers are in play is more wrong than letting Mikey Jackson open a day care....

So it's not like the ground rule double rule (or is it fan interference) that if the umpire feels the runner on base would've gotten to a certain point, he can award him that base?
That sounds like home field advantage at its best, and another example that allows umpires to not have to make judgments on the obvious.
